Justin Bieber Performs ‘Boyfriend,’ Gets Own Graduation Ceremony on ‘Ellen’
Not only did Justin Bieber announce the news of his upcoming North American tour on 'Ellen' (airing Wednesday, May 23), he also graced audiences with a performance of his latest single, 'Boyfriend' and got his very own graduation ceremony thanks to Ellen DeGeneres.
The 18-year-old superstar wore a navy varsity jacket for the show, which was emblazoned with a "J" on the front and the word "boyfriend" on the back (obviously). The live rendition of the song was aided by a backing track and a coed group of dancers.
Bieber strutted his stuff like a pro, and ventured into the audience to give high fives and connect with fans. Although he offered Beliebers the musical treat and the exciting announcement of his headlining tour, Ellen had a surprise in store for the pop star.
Bieber recently completed home schooling, so the talk show host held a graduation ceremony for the singer. Not only did she give a hilarious commencement speech, but she also gifted The Biebs with a diploma and a custom graduation cap that was designed to keep his famous hair in tact.
Bieber will kick off his 2012-2013 Believe tour on Sept. 29 in Glendale, Ariz., and wrap his run up on Jan. 26 in Miami, Fla. next year.
